Leader of the Opposition in Sindh Assembly, Haleem Adil Sheikh, said that Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) has failed miserably to deliver in Sindh.

"People of the province want to make Bilawal and other PPP leadership accountable for their failure," Sheikh said addressing a press conference at Sindh Assembly building.

He said that it is last tenure of PPP in Sindh as people are fed up of their bad governance, maladministration and corruption.

PTI's Sindh Haqooq March is a movement of the people to save Sindh and get rid of Asif Ali Zardari and his coterie. The march led by Makhdoom Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Asad Umer and Ali Zaidi continues with strong support of people of Sindh and will achieve its objectives, he vowed.

He said that a couple of days ago, PTI's Sindh Haqooq March started from Kamu Shaheed where our young fellow Mir Iftikhar Lund got seriously injured after falling from the container and now he is under treatment at AO Clinic

PTI MPA Dr Imran Shah was present there to immediately take care of the injured Iftikhar Lund who was taken to Mirpur Mathelo Hospital but even cannula was not available at the government hospital, he said adding that Iftikhar Lund was then carried to CMH for first aid and finally he was brought to Karachi. Funds of both the CMH and Mirpur Mathelo hospitals are equal but facilities are available only in the former, he added.

Sheikh said that he had to stay in Karachi for hearing in the court of defamation case filed by Saeed Ghani and he will join the march in Nawabshah on Tuesday.

The Opposition Leader said "We have asked some questions from PPP before beginning of their march and they should march ahead after answering the questions and stating the state of affairs in Sindh province."

PPP's March is not a march of common people but of Sardars and Zardars who were using official resources while route of the march in Thatta and other areas were cordoned off because they wanted to keep masses away, he said and added that PPP is afraid of harsh reaction of masses so they also forcefully closed shops.

Sheikh said that if PPP had support of public they were not needed official resources as vehicles of police and fire brigade were seen installing flags and carrying tents for PPP's camps. He said that tax money is being utilized for rally and gathering of a political party.

Where ever Bilawal goes a catastrophic situation arises there and same was witnessed in Thatta where roads leading to hospitals were blocked and patients had no other option but to walk two kilometres to reach at hospital, he noted.

He said that PPP did not find supporters for the march in Karachi and they paid Rs10,000 to workers for ensuring their participation in the march.
